Happy Father's Day

My Dad and Travis are the 2 BEST Dads EVER, at least that's what I think. I love them both. My dad is awesome and I am who I am because of him.

And Travis is so great with Tyler. I love seeing the bond between them grow. They both love doing boy stuff - usually the rougher the better and he can make him laugh no matter what.

So today was their day and why not doing something they both love - FISHING!

The weather was kind of skeptical. We had thunderstorms pass through early in the morning, but by late morning the sun was out. So off we went. It ended up sprinkling a little but not enough to send us packing. We are some dedicated people and plus the fish were biting better than ever.

We ended up catching 23 fish. We went back home and had a fish fry. Mmmm it was so good.
The True Fisherman!

Tyler caught the first fish of the day.

It was so funny. Most people when they fish watch their bobber and as soon as they get a bite they jerk their pole to hook the fish. Not Tyler. He waits until the bobber is completely gone for several seconds and he's gripping tightly to his pole. Eventually someone notices that he has a fish and helps him reel it in. There were several times when we were fishing and we'd say to each other 'Where's Tyler's bobber?' and then realize that 'Oh he has a fish!'.

Waiting out the rain.

The dedicated fisherman.

I love how Tyler was never afraid to touch the fish. Such a boy.

Look at all those fish!!
